. now let's go to the other house. let's read, and i'll read for you, what senator john cornyn said. he said, we will raise the debt ceiling. he doesn't say may. he says we will. of course he is in the senate. we're not going to default on our debt. both of these gentlemen are on the right track. i personally think in my emotional state i might not have wanted to increase the debt ceiling but i think politics of course we can't be naive. the president has a very big platform for his strategy. he has the bully pulpit. and i think that some media are calling this a retreat on the debt ceiling. to me the only retreat in the equation is williamsburg, virginia. but i do think that now we can concentrate on what andy brenner and i were talking about yesterday and that is march 1st the sequester. march 27th the continuing resolution because we haven't seen both houses pass a budget and i think these issues are much easier to extract from the democrats/the white house because the short-term bumps are going to put a lot of pressure and lot of press in my opinion on the main issue and the main is
